Sorry I thought you asked how the Russian market can make the ADR go up here...but your right not all foreign stocks trade in their own markets (though its rare, very few trade in the US, but not in their own country).
VIP is traded in Russia...in fact it has one of the largest holding on the Russian index and the real name for VimpelCom is actually VympelCom and trades under the ticker "VIMP"
They always try to pin the sell offs on someone, but the CEO at AT&T has little to do with this in my opinion. Unfortunately, people are so negative right now that they are looking for any little reason to sell into any strength. I hope VIP holds up as the broader markets continue to stink.
